That we should fear.

Rather, it is something that

and no one in this world

would ever move forward

to become the person

they’re meant to be.

Is more important

Listen to the silence,

it speaks.

Listen to your heart,

it knows.

to elevate past the hurt, to transcend

beyond what happend, to let go of what

and who no longer serves you, to protect

your energy daily, to get the lesson, 

to master your thoughts and emotions,

to forgive yourself, to love yourself

unconditionally and to honor your

body temple; all in order to thrive

and vibrate higher daily.

You all complain that you

do not have time to practice,

but the truth is you do not 

make the time. Once you

make the time to practice,

you will find you have more

time for everything.

                        Prashant Iyengar

 

  

We can bring calmness and quietness to our

minds and our emotions with the retention of

breath after exhalation.

I have said that exhalation empties the brain

and pacifies the ego, bringing it quiescent

humility. When you empty the brain, you

also empty toxins of memory. With the 

exhalation and retention, you let go of

resentment, anger, envy, and rancor.

Exhalation is a sacred act of surrender, of

self-abandonment.

                                    B.K.S. Iyengar  „Light of Life“

 

 

„Die Menschen werden vergessen, was du

das werden sie nie vergessen.“

If you look at the face

You cannot see 

The heart.

                Fernando Pessoa

 

„FINDING YOURSELF

is not really how it works. You aren’t a ten-dollar bill in last winter’s coat pocket.

You are also not lost.

Your true self is right there, buried under cultural condintioning, other people’s

opinions, and inaccurate conclusions you drew as a kid that became your beliefs

about who you are.

„FINDING YOURSELF“ is actually 

RETURNING TO YOURSELF.

An unlearning, an excavation, a remembering who you were

before the world got its hands on you.

                                                           Emily McDowell

 

THE FOUR ELEMENTS OF TRUE LOVE

True love is made of four elements: loving, kindness, compassion, joy and equanimity.

In Sanskrit, these are, maitri, karuna, mudita, and upeksha. 

If your love contains these elements, it will be healing and transforming, and

it will have the element of holiness in it. 

True love has the power to heal and transform any situation and bring deep meaning

to our lives. 

                                                                                            Thich Nhat Hanh

 

I change my life when I

change my thinking. I am

Light. I am Spirit. I am a

wonderful, capable being.

And it is time for me to 

acknowledge that I create

my own reality with my

thoughts. If I want to 

change my reality, then 

it is time for me to change

my mind.

                       Louise L. Hay

 

Manifesting is not about

attracting  what you want.

Manifesting is an

awareness  and an

understanding that you

attract what you are.

                          Wayne Dyer

 

Your visions will become clearly only

when you can look into your own heart.

Who looks outside, dreams;

who looks inside, awakes.

                                                 C. G. Jung

 

The pose is not the goal.

Becoming flexible is not the goal.

Standing on your hands is not the goal.

The goal is serenity. Balance.

Truly finding peace in your own

yoga skin.
